4.0 out of 5 stars 4/5 - Quite satisfied, 26 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm overall quite satisfied with the Garmin Nuvi 2545LMT, and this is why.

Pros:

- Easy to use most of the times, with many ways to find places, intersections, etc
- Good tracing of routes through intermediary points (to influence the choice of a route)
- Considerable flexibility regarding routes and route features to avoid, e.g., toll roads
- Good text and graphic support during driving, to complement voice instructions
- Garmin provides a tool to load up additional Points Of Interest files
- Good product finish and accessory finish
- Seemingly good value for money, considering Amazon discounted price + Garmin Summer cash back

Cons:

- Voice instructions sometimes tell you to turn in advance of a junction, and you may turn too early
- When moving off from an intermediary point it utters an undescriptive 'follow highlighted route'
- Some settings, e.g., Satellite Emulation mode, aren't restored when unit goes to sleep and back
- The unit has rebooted twice this month when using certain context menues while reviewing a route
- Downloading maps updates took three hours and it filled the internal memory to the brim
- Live traffic information isn't received unless an additional reception accessory is used

Learning point:

I'll have to get used to glancing at the text near intersections to improve precision when taking a turn.

I would rate the Garmin Nuvi 2545LMT 4 stars out of 5 and I'm overall quite satisfied with my purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Excessive dramatization makes a poor result, 2 Sept. 2002
If you're looking for lengthily, possible absorbing reading, go for it. But if you take direct action seriously, or are curious about it, abstain. The book is written in heavily dramatized style, which makes extracting facts and sequences of facts very difficult; while the agents' conscience struggle is not, in my opinion, convincingly developed. Only the activists' press releases included in the appendix are of documentary value.
